The Casualty Actuarial Society participated in The Pipeline Virtual Career Fair on February 13, 2018, joining insurance industry employers and organizations in connecting with students pursuing careers in insurance. The event was organized by Gamma Iota Sigma (GIS), the insurance industry’s premier collegiate talent pipeline, in conjunction with Insurance Careers Month. The Pipeline Virtual Career Fair was offered to students at no cost, and was attended by 700 students from both GIS chapter schools as well as nearly 50 additional schools. Nearly 1,400 interviews were completed in the five hours the event was running.
GIS Chief Executive Officer Noelle Codispoti noted, “Our firsthand experiences with our industry partners help to shape the programming we provide, and that’s no different when it comes to the industry’s need to meet the talent gap head-on. We see the need, we hear the industry demand, and we are helping to hone the talent solution through our ever-expanding network of students and chapters. All of these factors converged for us to make a meaningful contribution to Insurance Careers Month by doing what we do best: connecting top collegiate talent to opportunities in the industry through thoughtful and strategic collaboration.”
CAS University Engagement Manager Tamar Gertner said of CAS’s participation, “We want to thank GIS for organizing this innovative event, and spearheading a new way to connect with university students. As a Sustaining Partner of Gamma Iota Sigma, we appreciated the opportunity to participate in this event. The virtual career fair platform offered the CAS a chance to communicate with a number of students from a variety of universities, answering questions about the actuarial career path and the credentialing process, and sharing details about the resources and benefits offered through CAS Student Central, our free student membership program.”
The next Gamma Iota Sigma career fair will be held in conjunction with their Annual International Conference, scheduled for October 4-6, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois.
